Hey everyone just wondering how many people get angry when playing? My partner does (gets real angry) and he says it helps, but it seems when he's that angry we lose. He does ok when he's not angry but latley he get so mad after 1 loss. We only got done with 3 games (won first one lost next 2) before I called it this week on his anger, it's not fun for me being yelled at over a game...Dont get me wrong, I'll get a little mad when things go wrong but nothing like him.

My experience in arenas is a little low since pve is my focus, I usually just do 2's since I can only pvp 2-3 days out of the week (tried getting on a 5's but never had time to play). So should I get another partner who actually has fun in arenas or are most people like this in arenas?

it doesnt help. Unless the match is personal, for example you know the people you faced and they suck but you lost a game to them. If it involves a friendly rivalry anger can help.

If i lose a game i honestly dont care. Figure out mistakes.

Looking to create a fun filled day with my girlfriend and searching for some unique ideas.


So far we're going to see the sunrise early in the morning. After that, I was thinking something like hide & seek in the mall.

Back when I played a paladin in s1/s2 our vent was hilarious as we played. The entire match we would be yelling at each other and absolutely foaming over mistakes etc.

Then when the match ended all was calm (until the gates opened for the next match)

Now we're relatively laid back all the time (same partner). Nerf druids

Yes, I just get angry at myself (regardless if it was my fault or not.) and never feel the need to vent on the vent.

OMG i laughed so loud right now. I think the question should be how can you not get nerd rage when your team plays like such crap and you lose 21 points to every freakin team. ALL because your priest thinks its a good idea to chase the druid, instead of killing a dps and letting te druid come to us.

Thanks for the quick responces :), just want to add that I run with a resto druid
@ Neokrebs, no the games aren't personal, but after a loss I ask him what we can do better but nothing constructive ever comes from it.
@ Duckers, I understand that who wouldn't be mad but it don't make you yell at your teammate.

Gonno thats like me last season when I was going for weapons but now I just play for fun and dont stress about ratings anymore. But it seems he still does :(

The point of the game is to have fun. If playing arena with your current partner isn't fun, then don't do it. Either stop arenas if they aren't fun for you or play with someone that makes playing the game fun.

I get angry very rarely anymore. Just remember it's only a game.

It's always okay to rage for a few seconds if you get chain mace stunned and die, especially if you get caught in caster as a druid. Or if that warrior macestuns you every time you fake him out.

It's rare for me to get angry and yell when i lost (or when something goes wrong). I just rage for a few secs and im ready again for the next match.
When i lose a match, i try to see what happened and improve on the next one.
I REALLY hate ppl that yells over vent.
I played sometime with a guy on my server that is a pain. He is a VERY GOOD player but he is so annoying that i had to quit arenas with him.
Yelling all the time at vent when things goes wrong: "FUCK.. CS RESISTED"
when i broke a sheep ( i right clicked on the sheep target by mistake): "WTF DUDE, U SUCK, U BROKE MY SHEEP" ... i just gave up :P

It's just a game.. i play this to have fun. If i'm not having fun, there is no point in playing.
